The Astrological Signs of this year’s EMA Noms

We figured out the nominees’ astrological signs so you don’t have to.

October 25, 2016
We've got at least one nominee repping each astrological sign this year! Turns out the stars have really aligned for Virgos this EMA season.  Check out our breakdown of the nominees' zodiac signs below:

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): Mike Posner, The Weeknd, Greenday's Billie Joe Armstrong and Tame Impala's Kevin Parker are all Aquarius.  This sign is known to be friendly (Kevin Parker), honest (Billie Joe Armstrong), independent (The Weeknd) and original (Mike Posner). 

Pisces (February 19 – March 20): Rihanna, Justin Bieber and Coldplay's Chris Martin are the Pisces nominees.   Pisces people tend to be imaginative, sensitive and kind.  Their music totally reflects those Pisces traits.

Aries (March 21- April 19): Lady Gaga is the quintessential Aries.  People who are Aries are energetic, courageous, confident and pioneering.  The fact that Lady  Gaga is an Aries proves, once and for all, that astrology is real!

Taurus (April 20-May 20): Martin Garrix and Adele are the Taurus nominees of this year's EMAs. A Taurus is generally patient, loving, persistent, and reliable.  Hater's will say astrology is fake but, come on, Adele is clearly persistent AF.  Just look at the lyrics from "Hello": "Hello from the other side, I must have called a thousand times."  If that isn't persistence we don't know what is.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Kanye and G-Eazy are Geminis and it makes so much sense.  Geminis are typically expressive , serious, versatile, intellectual and lively people.  Fun fact: Kanye is a proud Gemini.  On his track "Saint Pablo," he raps,  "The ultimate Gemini has survived, I wasn't supposed to make it past 25."

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Ariana Grande and Selena Gomez are both cancers, which typically are emotional, intuitive, loving and imaginative people. We can for sure hear all of that emotion and love come through in their music.

Leo (July 23- August 22): Shawn Mendes and Joe Jonas will be the Leos at this year's EMAs.  Leos are generous, warmhearted, creative, enthusiastic and loyal.  We're looking forward to some creative and generous performances from these two!

Virgo (August 23 – September 22) : Beyonce, Wiz Khalifa, Bebe Rexha, Afrojack, Lukas Graham's Lukas Forchhammer and DNCE's Jack Lawless are the Virgos of this year's EMAs.  Virgos are known for being modest, meticulous, practical and diligent.  With those traits, it's no wonder so many Virgos earned nominations.   
Libra (September 23 – October 22) : The Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea and Radiohead's Thom Yorke are both Libras.  The common libra attributes, romantic, charming and easygoing, are fitting of these two rock stars.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): Drake, Future, David Guetta, Diplo and the Red Hot Chili Peppers' Anthony Kiedis will be repping Scorpios at the EMAs.  Scorpios tend to be determined, emotional (looking at you, Drake), intuitive and passionate.

Sagittarius (November 22- December 21):  Sia, Zara Larsson and Tyler Joesph of Twenty One Pilots are this year's Sagittarius nominees.  Sagittarius are enthusiastic, optimistic and honest freedom-lovers.  We can't wait for Larsson to bring that enthusiasm to the stage when she performs this year!

Capricorn (December 22 –January 19): Calvin Harris will be repping Capricorns at the EMAs.  Practical, ambitious, disciplined, and patient are the traits you'll find in a Capricorn.  Harris definitely fits the mold.
